I backed the Kickstarter for Shadowrun : Hong Kong, so I'll be getting that.

I wasn't planning on getting Sword Art Online since I already have the Vita version, but you get it free if you preorder the sequel.  Also, the new Magic The Gathering is out on Steam and XBox One this week, so I'll be trying out the XBO version.

Some DS footage

I don't understand why they are using the two screens the way they are but I love DQ so I guess I will be optimistic. 

The DQ series is big on nostalgia, and having the top screen show 3D graphics while the bottom screen shows the same thing with SNES-era graphics is a neat effect.  I don't think I've ever seen something like it before.  There have been remakes that allow you to toggle between old and new, but I've never seen a game with two different graphical styles displayed at once.  Also, the video shows that you can have battles displayed DQ8-style with your character visibly attacking animated monsters, or SNES-style with static monster and no on-screen characters.

There's a major new feature called Kanai's Cube coming in the next patch.  The cube can extract a legendary power from a legendary item, and you can equip three of these powers.  These are separate from the powers you get from equipping Legendary items.  Also -

There are also several other quality of life functions Kanai’s Cube can perform, such as removing the level requirement from an item, converting gems and crafting materials from one type to another, and converting a set item to a different piece of that set.
8  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Dragon Quest XI Announced on: July 28, 2015, 12:08:25 PM
Square Enix has announced that Dragon Quest XI is in development for the rather odd trio of PS4, 3DS, and Nintendo NX.  The PS4 and 3DS games will be different games with the same story, similar to the PS3 and DS versions of Ni No Kuni.  There are few details so far and only a little bit of footage from the game, but it looks beautiful and there seems to be a big focus on exploration.  It's due out in Japan for the DQ series' 30th anniversary next year, and I'm hoping the North American localization isn't far behind.

SE also announced Dragon Quest Builders which is Minecraft with DQ characters.

My first thought was that it was fake as well, but the article doesn't really offer any proof that it isn't real.  It just mentions that the video's uploader is a visual effects artist.
11  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (7/14) on: July 13, 2015, 11:11:27 AM
So Many Me is out for XBox One this week and it's free with Games With Gold. Also, the latest Magic The Gathering game is supposed to be out this week for XBox One and Steam.  Rather than the yearly releases, they've switched to an ongoing free to play model, so I'll try it out.
12  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (7/7) on: July 06, 2015, 11:27:07 AM
Rocket League with PS+ and I'm also looking at The Amber Throne, a JRPG with a handpainted grahical style.

It's not Darksiders 3 frown but it does sound interesting.  It's a new game called Elex from the developers of the Gothic and Risen series -

Quote
“ELEX” is a handcrafted action role-playing experience from the award-winning creators of the Gothic series, set in a brand new post-apocalyptic Science Fantasy universe that puts players into a huge seamless game world full of original characters, mutated creatures, deep moral choices and powerful action.

Nordic Games is teasing something, and the image looks like it could be Darksiders 3.
16  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (6/30) on: June 29, 2015, 12:47:17 PM
Maybe Scrabble for PS4, depending on price and features.
17  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS4] Driveclub on: June 25, 2015, 12:06:53 AM
After a slight delay, the PS+ version of Driveclub will be available on Thursday 6/25.  You will only be able to play the offline part of the game at first, but they will be "rolling out" the multiplayer portion to users over time.

One question I had, all the rebel allies have blue names except one, who's name is in yellow/gold. Any idea what that signifies?  icon_smile The "fish-face" guy (I forget the race -- it's the one who's Lando's co-pilot late in Return of the Jedi  icon_smile) at the 20 second mark has the yellow/gold name, while every other rebel's name is in blue.

I think it means that character is a hero, as opposed to a regular fighter.  At the end of the trailer, Luke's health bar is gold, while normal characters have red health bars, so I'm assuming gold=hero.

Quote from: Zinfan on June 16, 2015, 04:16:26 AM

Shenmue is a kick starter that Sony distanced themselves from during its introduction.  FF7 is a remake so what is the big deal with that?  Last Guardian seemed nice enough but what do we know about it beyond a bit of gameplay?

The Last Guardian, and especially Shenmue III and the FF7 remake are all E3 legends - every year people hope to see them announced and have always been disappointed.  Having all three announced in one press conference is amazing.  Sony did a terrible job of hyping up the reveals, though.

Also, the Shenmue III kickstarter reached its funding goal of $2 million in under 9 hours  icon_eek

I love these type of "ready now" surprises.  Hopefully, this means an announcement of Mother 3 at E3.

25  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS4] Ratchet and Clank on: June 10, 2015, 09:05:03 PM
This post at the Playstation blog explains that the game is a re-imagining of the original R&C game.

Quote
We started out thinking of Ratchet & Clank on PS4 as a “re-imagining” of the 2002 original, revised to tie in with the deeper version of Ratchet’s origin story (as seen in the film). We envisioned a curated Ratchet & Clank experience that borrowed from the spirit of the classic PS2 games while infusing some of the best elements from the Ratchet & Clank Future games.

We ended up with a new game, with elements based on the original — but now with modern controls, several new planets, new and updated gameplay segments, all-new Clank gameplay, all new boss fights, new flight sequences, and more… all constructed to take advantage of the graphical prowess of PS4. Throw in James Arnold Taylor as Ratchet, and you have a new beginning.

There's also an eight-minute gameplay video here showing off two sections of the game.
26  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (6/9) on: June 09, 2015, 08:52:11 PM
I'll be getting Operation Abyss : New Tokyo Legacy and LEGO Jurassic Park.  I know the LEGO games tend to drop in price quickly, but I just can't resist them.
27  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (6/2) on: June 02, 2015, 09:57:50 AM
Day One - Skulls of the Shogun: Bone-A-Fide Edition, Super Exploding Zoo!, Massive Chalice, thanks to PS+ and GWG
Someday - Lord of Magna: Maiden Heaven
28  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Playstation Plus - Now with lots more free games! on: May 29, 2015, 10:30:48 AM
It's a good month for strategy games with Skulls of The Shogun on PS+ and Massive Chalice on XBOX Games With Gold.
29  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (5/24) on: May 26, 2015, 11:53:45 AM
Day One - Game of Thrones Episode Four: Sons Of Winter for PS4
Someday - Magicka 2

I'm still undecided on Splatoon.  It looks like a lot of fun, but the general hype level seems very low, which does not bode well for an online-focused game.  I'm waiting on reviews to decide if I want to jump in or not.

I'll also probably get Beach Buggy Racing for XB1, assuming it's $5 like the XB1 version of Riptide GP 2.

Have they confirmed a US release date yet? I'm really excited for this...

Thankfully, Nintendo learned from their complete botching of the first game's release in the US, and they announced the localization when they originally announced the game.  Here's Nintendo of America's listing for the game, with a release date of "2015".

At this point, I can't even hazard a guess as to whether Square Enix or Nintendo will localize it.  It probably depends on the amount of new stuff they add and how much additional work would have to be done to bring it to the US.

Here's the first trailer.  It looks great, but unfortunately the show won't debut until midseason frown 
36  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Wii U] Splatoon on: May 12, 2015, 10:50:53 AM
I'm torn regarding the game.  It looks like a lot of fun (I remember spending hours and hours playing an old shareware game where you ran around trying to paint as much of the level with your color as possible) but I'm worried this won't find a player base.  An online multiplayer focused Nintendo game is an uncertain prospect to begin with, and the fact that the game is only shipping with 5 maps and 1 online mode (with the rest to be rolled out over summer) is also cause for concern.
37  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: DC's Legends of Tomorrow on: May 11, 2015, 01:13:09 PM
The characters from Legends of Tomorrow will appear in The Flash season finale, so it looks like that will be the launching point of the series.
38  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (5/12) on: May 11, 2015, 11:43:44 AM
I think Final Fantasy IV: The After Years is supposed to be in the PC section.  It comes out for PC this week, but I haven't heard anything about a PS4 release.

Day One - nothing
Someday - ArcaniA: The Complete Tale,  Invisible, Inc., Knights of Pen and Paper 2, Not A Hero
39  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / DC's Legends of Tomorrow on: May 08, 2015, 01:00:25 PM
Arrow and The Flash are getting a spinoff called DC's Legends of Tomorrow which will involve "heroes and villains joining forces to save the planet and time itself, led by time-traveler Rip Hunter".  The cast is a mix of characters from both shows - The Atom and the former Black Canary from Arrow and Firestorm (or at least the Dr. Stein half), Captain Cold, and Heat Wave from The Flash.

ABC has announced their fall plans - both Agents of SHIELD and Agent Carter will be back, but the potential Bobbi and Mack spinoff is no longer happening.

BTW, did anyone else catch the Sonic reference a few weeks back?  icon_biggrin
